Let performance poet Courtney Stoddart boost your skills and confidence while you experiment with slam poetry, whether you’re yet to write your first poem or you’re a slam regular!

Courtney Stoddart is a poet and singer passionate about dismantling hierarchy in all its forms. She intertwines historical, political and social discussion into rhythm and rhyme. Taking inspiration from the lyricism and format of old-school hip hop and rap.

If you’re interested in this workshop, take a look at GWL’s first Digital Poetry Slam at Open the Door. Book onto the workshop in April at the Glasgow Women’s Library here.
